Kottigehara: The police called off the search for the body of a man believed to be dumped in the Charmadi Ghat after being murdered.
As was the case for the past 3 days, the search for the mortal remains of H Sharath continued on Thursday. However, the body was nowhere to be found. It was decided to abandon the search for the time being and the police returned to Bengaluru with the accused.
The recovery of the body is being delayed as the accused in the case failed to accurately identify the spot where they had dumped the body.
For three days, the Cubbon Park and Ashoknagar Police, along with the help from local social workers and journalists, combed the forest area next to the Charmadi ghat Highway from Annppa Swamy temple and Somanakadu area for the gunny bag in which the accused had dumped the body in. Thereafter the search was called off.
